Epoch Theatre Presents

The Lightning Gap

A tenacious cheerleader rebels against the exclusive, men-only golf club that dominates the culture of her small Texas town. April 21-23 at Lifelong Ithaca. Part of the 2017 Ithaca Fringe Festival. 

Written & Directed by James Comfort II.


Clover McNamara has the perfect life. Beloved by her town and worshiped by her friends, she has everything her Mother has always wanted for her. But that’s not what Clover wants. She wants to play golf. For over 100 years, the Paschal Golf Club has been the heart and soul of Epoch, Texas. There’s just one problem: the club doesn’t allow women. Throwing caution to the wind, Clover will attempt to fight her way into the club, and make history in the process.
